JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It's a $22.5 million question facing the Jacksonville Jaguars as the annual NFL Draft approaches.
Jaguars fans are waiting to see what moves the team will make after years of first-round pick busts. Luke Joeckel, who was picked in the 2013 season, ended the season on Injured Reserve after a promising start to the season.
"The last two years have been really frustrating," says long-time season ticket holder Keith White. "There have been a few games where I haven't wanted to cheer"
White says he would like to see the team select Johnny Manziel or Sammy Watkins.
"This draft is loaded with star-power in terms of prospects. We don't know where these teams will go. There will be a lot of intrigue at the top," says Matthew Fairburn, Mocking the Draft editor. "When you have the number three pick you really have to hit because general managers that don't hit don't have jobs for very long."
Fairburn says he expects the Jaguars to select from Texas A&M Quarterback Johnny Manziel, Lousiville Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, South Carolina Defensive End Jadeveon Clowney, Buffalo Linebacker Khalil Mack and Clemson Wide Receiver Sammy Watkins.
"You need to get those picks right because that's how you lay the foundation for your team. The Jags haven't drafted well the past few years and that's why the team has been about laying a foundation and finding some talent."
